Thanks for the reply. I don't have anythng planned right at this time. I have just been confused by what I have read and heard on ESD procedures.
Have read that you should use a wrist strap attached to a properly gounded case, but the article did not tell what it considered a properly grounded case. In completly separate article, read that the best way to ground a computer was thru a grounded plug-in. In still a different article, I read that the computer should be un-plugged before working on it. I tried looking at different sources but basically found the same thing - no article I found - told the complete answer.
Had one person tell me to open the case, touch a metal part of the case with both hands, then attach the wrist strap and then unplug the computer and leave the writst strap on. Does the wrist strap do any good at that point with the computer unplugged?
To me, the information is confusing and contradictory. When using a wrist strap - to leave plugged in or to un-plug - that is the question.
Thanks for your input.
